Re: I question some of the rules here

But wanted to give my two cents as a semi-long user. I'm aware I'm not a mod and unaware of behind the scenes work and such. And your feedback is well appreciated. So, thank you! First up: There already is the chit-chat section, where moderation is (or should be) laxer. The discussion section is su...

The Holiday Writing Challenges Part 2: Angel Attack!

Much like this challenge, the angels come when you least expect them. Everybody asks: "Where's the angel? What is this Angel? When is the Angel? Why is the Angel?!" But nobody asks: "How is the Angel?" Well, except me it seems. The Second Challenge: Describe any Angel attack you ...

Re: Episode 16 symbolism: Leliel and Shinji.

that's a "fake happiness" because he doesn't really want to be an EVA pilot and doesn't know how to give up on the status quo. Yeah, exactly. Also in reply to what BernardoCairo said, Shinji is hoping that by doing what he thinks everybody expects of him, they will like him and show him a...

Re: Episode 16 symbolism: Leliel and Shinji.

Hey there! ^_^ I remember a recent private discussion about this topic which mostly resulted in the conclusion that more work needs to be done to understand the sunset symbolism exactly. As food for thought, here are some things to consider: - Sunset is generally a transitionary period. Day turns in...

Re: Reichu's dissection of the ReiQ reveal scene

@Kendrix: To be nitpicky, Fuyutsuki says "This is almost exactly what SEELE wished for", to which Gendo replies "It will suffice for now" (or something) - implying that they did indeed achieve their goal but just barely.

Re: EoE Kitchen scene

What's your theory? That despite Intrumentality being unavoidable, Rei fulfilled the Shinji's wish to see Asuka? There's really nothing contradictory about this? It has no impact on Instrumentality whether or not Shinji sees Asuka or not (if that even was his wish to begin with). Also keep in mind ...

Re: Writers Help

Well, exactly what Glor said. You can not force people to not see it a a joke, but you can take the character seriously and treat her seriously. NGE itself begins by "meming" on previous Mecha shows, and there's a lot of superficially ridiculous stuff & tropes in the action arc. It all...

Re: Is Rei human?

You're comparing oranges to computers. And you refuse to accept the fact that the EvaVerse is governed by EvaVerse laws and isn't real life. Reality AND sci-fi have told us over and over again, that the power of creating human life rests in the hands of a higher power than us. Oh please , give it a...

Re: The Holiday Writing Challenges Part 1: AsuShin New Year!

Offerings Shinji didn't say anything when Asuka declared that she had technically died two years ago, so she wasn't bound by any legal status and could drink as much as she pleased. He only watched when Kensuke fell asleep on the couch. He kept his distance as Toji and Hikari stole to the gu...

Re: The Evageeks Writing Challenges: Discussion & Feedback

Yeah, what Glor said! I guess AsuShin came up because it is a pairing everybody has an opinion on - and keep in mind, there's nothing stipulating what kind of relationship they share. So, it does not have to be happy or pretty, if that's not to your tastes - write a breakup story, then! Lots of thin...
